Finding Support Resources in Your Community

When a service member, veteran or family is ready to reach out for support services for reintegration challenges, it is easiest to start in your own community. We have highlighted several resources and services that are available nationally and locally to help you with employment, housing, counseling, education assistance and much more.

Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) Outreach Center

Looking for information on combat stress, depression or other psychological health concerns? Are you or someone you know experiencing frequent headaches or having difficulty remembering as a result of a concussion? Preparing to relocate and looking for support services at your new assignment? The DCoE Outreach Center has the answers you need. Trained health resource consultants are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide you with information and resources on psychological health and traumatic brain injury and connect you with services in your community to help you cope with invisible wounds.

The DCoE Outreach Center is available to service members, veterans, military families, friends and supporters free of charge and information is provided confidentially. To contact the DCoE Outreach Center, log on to the Real Warriors Campaign Live Chat from your computer or smart mobile device, call 866-966-1020 or email resources@dcoeoutreach.org.

National Resource Directory

The National Resource Directory (NRD) makes it easy to sort and find the support resources you are looking for in your own community. The online tool connects service members, veterans and families to nearly 14,000 services and resources at the national, state/territory and local levels that support recovery, rehabilitation and community reintegration.

Search the NRD by city, state or zip code for resources on:

  • Benefits and Compensation
  • Education and Training
  • Employment
  • Family and Caregiver Support
  • Health
  • Homeless Assistance
  • Housing
  • Transportation and Travel
  • Volunteer Opportunities
  • Other Services

Are you making the transition from military service to civilian employment? Search for open positions from companies dedicated to hiring veterans through the NRD Veterans Job Bank . The job bank uses search criteria such as keyword, location and military experience to facilitate access to hundreds of thousands of private sector job openings specifically targeted to veterans.1

When you’re reaching out for support, you want to know that the resources you access can be trusted. The NRD screens all non-governmental resources to verify that they are legitimate non-profit organizations that are properly registered with the federal government and confirm that they provide benefits or services to service members, veterans and families.2

To stay up to date with the latest resources and services your community, service members, veterans and families can sign up to receive email updates on new resources as they are added to the directory. In addition, you can connect to the National Resource Directory through Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

For more information, read the Real Warriors Campaign article, “National Resource Directory.”

Vet Centers

As a veteran reintegrating into civilian life, you may experience readjustment challenges following your service in a combat zone. To help you and your family thrive, the Department of Veteran Affairs has a network of community-based counseling facilities called Vet Centers.

Support services offered by Vet Centers include:3

  • Individual and group counseling for veterans and their families
  • Family counseling for military-related issues
  • Bereavement counseling for families who experience the death of a loved one serving on active duty
  • Military sexual trauma counseling and referrals
  • Outreach and education at military and community events such as post-deployment health reassessments and Veterans Musters.
  • Substance abuse assessment and referral
  • Employment assessment and referral
  • Benefits explanation and referral
  • Screening and referral for medical and psychological issues including traumatic brain injury, depression and other psychological health concerns

All combat veterans and their families are eligible. Vet Center services are available free of charge and kept private.

There are 273 Vet Centers located in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa and the U.S. Virgin Islands. To find a Vet Center near you, search the Vet Center National Directory by zip code or call 877-WAR-VETS (877-927-8387). For more information, check out the Real Warriors Campaign article on Vet Centers.

CareerOneStop: Key to Career Success

Transitioning from military service to a civilian job can be challenging. Identifying jobs that match your military skill set, translating your military experience to a civilian resume and preparing for interviews may seem difficult, but CareerOneStop, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, makes it easy. Visit the website’s military transition section, Key to Career Success, which offers employment information and resources specifically tailored to transitioning from military service to civilian employment. The program helps service members match their military experience to civilian occupations, obtain credentials and professional licenses, prepare resumes and search for jobs. Additionally, the website also features resources that help military spouses with career planning, job searches and relocation planning.

Veterans ReEmployment helps veterans match their military experience to civilian occupations, identify job openings and education programs in their local area and learn about unemployment benefits and other assistance programs.

To find workforce services in your community, search for a One-Stop Career Center near you using America’s Service Locator. With more than 2,800 comprehensive or affiliate centers located across the country, help is not far away.

Additional Community Resources

  • Service members, veterans and families can contact with their local American Red Cross chapter for a variety of resources including emergency communications, access to emergency financial assistance, assistance with claims for veterans’ benefits and counseling, guidance and referrals. You can find Red Cross services and personnel in the organization’s 700 U.S. chapters, military installations worldwide and forward deployed locations in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq. For more information, read the Real Warriors Campaign article, “Knowing What the Red Cross Can Do For You,” visit www.redcross.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
  • Military families generally move six to nine times while children are between kindergarten and 12th grade.4 With each move comes new challenges, such as varying academic standards, access to programs for children with special needs and transfer and acceptance policies. Additionally, separation from a deployed parent can also create challenges for a military family. The Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) provides information, resources and assistance to families and school districts in resolving transition challenges for military students. For more information, visit www.militarychild.org or call 254-953-1923.
  • If you have experienced a loss of a service member, friend or loved one, the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, Inc. (TAPS) provides peer support, crisis intervention, case work, and grief and trauma resources to all who are grieving. For more information, visit www.taps.org or call 1-800-959-TAPS (1-800-959-8277).
